    I just purchased a second-hand Linksys WMCE54AG media extender and
    successfully connected it through a wireless router to my Windows XP Media
    Center 2005 PC. All seems to be working fine (My TV, My Pictures, etc.)
    except I can not access Online Spotlight. I get a dialog box saying "Site
    Not Designed for Media Center" and asks me to View Later / View Now / Cancel.
    I select to view now and get the Online Spotlight menu options, but can not
    select any option.

    This functionality all works fine directly on my PC. Is there some setup
    that I missed on the extender? I tried to upgrade the firmware, but when I
    installed, it said I have a newer version. Any help would be greatly

    Well, after extensive trial and error, I finally figured out what the problem
    was. The Linksys extender is not compatible with IE7. After rolling back to
    IE6, I was able to see Online Spotlight in the media extender. As a note of
    caution, I had upgraded to IE8 beta 2 and Online Spotlight stopped working on
    my media center PC as well. I got the same error I did on my extender. This
    ultimately was how I realized the problem was with IE.
